Fun date, but still pregnant.

Day seven. Baby is officially the latest one I have ever had. I have a stomach ache this morning, as I do every day the last week or two, but no contractions. I must admit, my hopes were up when I woke up at 2:34a.m. and had a strong, albeit painless, contraction. Then, eight minutes later another, and seven minutes after that, another. I knew I was not in labor, but thought maybe I was gearing up for something. I went back to sleep and woke up to...NOTHING. Yep. Nothing. So, not even my attempt at recreating my circumstances of Cody's labor did anything for me.

The movie was fun, and pretty cool in 3D. The baby beat the living daylights out of my bladder the whole time, but I managed to make it through the whole movie without a bathroom break, so I was pretty proud of that. We took all of our hospital bags and other stuff with us, so it felt like we were packing for the real thing. Now we are back home with our stuff and no baby. Well, I guess the baby is technically here, but not in the way that we were hoping. At this rate, it looks like my prediction was wrong too. Doesn't seem like the baby is coming today either. I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday, and if I have to go and I am still pregnant, I am probably going to lose it on my doctor. I am thinking I will also refuse to take a urine sample in for the nurses. They don't like that, but come on. Nine days overdue, what does it matter what the heck is in my pee? I might even refuse to get weighed while I'm at it. I mean, obviously I am at the end of the line here. Why don't they just send me for an ultrasound to make sure this baby is okay in there? Either my baby is truly relaxed and having a great time, or he/she does not want to come out into this scary world. I hope it's the former and not the latter. What the heck am I going to do today to distract myself from the moving mountain that is my belly? I truly have no idea. What I should do is some homework, but my brain is so distracted that I don't know whether I could focus on it. I think I will try regardless. It is due on August 1st, so if this baby continues to be super late and I don't do the homework ahead of time, I will end up missing my deadline, and I don't want to do that.

I had a dream last night that my sister decided that her and her husband and Mike and I should go in our van to Winnipeg to play cards with my Grandma for an hour and then head back. This plan included getting some kind of yummy meal for her too. (My sister, not my Grandma.) I was not really enthused about the idea because it seemed like a long way to go for a game of cards, but I told her I'd talk to Mike and we'd get back to her. To my shock, Mike told me he absolutely agreed that we should go. I protested, reminding him that I was six days overdue and did not want to have my baby in Winnipeg. He then told me that he didn't care whether I came or not but that he would be going because family gatherings are important. I was so mad. How could he go almost three hours away when I am this overdue?? Ironically, in real life he would probably be perfectly safe to do so, but he never would. What a dumb dream.

Anyway, not much else to report this morning. Cody is grouchy again. If only he could sleep later than 6:30a.m. Maybe that would help. The boys are all in the kitchen right now eating. I did not feel like joining them. Maybe we'll all go somewhere today, but I don't know where. I'm signing off for now. I'll update if there is anything new that is worth reporting.
